The Horrible Things Peope Do....
This Little guy is Devon. He was at the vet in South Carolina early last week getting neutered in advance of his big transport to the DC area. As they were intubating him, the vet noticed the back of his jaw was fractured, and recommended immediate follow up. As soon as he made it to the big city, we took him straight to Hayfield Animal Hospital where Dr. Smith took x-rays to confirm.
Devon's entire lower jaw was fractured. It looked like someone KICKED him in the face. How anyone could do that to a 10 lb chihuahua as sweet as little Devon, is completely beyond us!
Devon was immediately scheduled for surgery, part one of which happened yesterday and part two of which happened today. The report is VERY positive!! Dr. Smith was able to wire Devon's lower jaw back together and align it with his top jaw. A few hours after surgery, he was leaping around his crate in the recovery room!
Keep your fingers crossed for little Devon as we monitor him through the weekend!
